Danny Licht: Comma Sense, or How I Got into a Fight Over 2 Punctuation Marks

Congratulations to Danny Licht, the 15-year-old high school student writing this column. It's about punctuating this sentence correctly:
Marla and her dog Sally walked around the block.
Danny's two journalism class advisers in the fight he describes are 100 percent wrong. Undeniably.

As English teachers, they should be embarrassed and apologetic.

Good for Danny!

P.S. Without prompting by Danny, the teachers should have told the entire class in advance that Marla has more than one dog.
